About Margene Walz
Hi, Welcome to my home – My name is Margene Walz. I am the owner and am thrilled to show you around. Many years ago I moved to California from Nebraska but have always missed the mid-western values and hospitality. Through the advice of my brother Mike Walz of Crystal Beach's Walz Family Builders I seized the opportunity to sell my California condominium and built on Bolivar. I appreciate the area and the hospitality. It is like coming back to my roots. I am very pleased to be able to share my home with you. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. (By the way...the picture is of my great nephew, Alex. He photographs cuter than I do.)
Margene Walz purchased this House in 2014
Why Margene Walz chose Crystal Beach
Since my brother owns a home and a business in Crystal Beach I have visited many times. Each time I fell more and more in love with the area. I decided to invest my retirement money here and I can't wait to share this peaceful stress-free beach with you.
What makes this House unique
The front deck is 16' deep - 8' is covered and 8' is uncovered. Guests are able to enjoy the shade, read, sip a glass of wine or beer or tan in the sunshine. The deck which wraps around 3 sides of the house has private doors from the Master bedroom and Guest bedroom. Each has its own romantic personal space. But the most impressive thing about this home is the spectacular beach front view. The family area under the house includes an enclosed shower, bar with enclosed refrigerator and 2 built-in picnic tables. It is a wonderful area that will accommodate many family members and guests. Plus it offers you all the comforts of home with the additional bonus of hearing and watching the surf.

First let me start by saying that this owner is by far the most helpful of any of the properties I have rented. She is organized, friendly and had my questions answered before I could ask them. The house was very clean, comfortable and welcoming. We could not have enjoyed our week at the beach any more. It was everything we hoped it could be. Thank You Margene. We will be renting with you again. God Bless!
Gets better every time we stay here.
It turned out to be exactly what we were hoping it would be, it was quite and peaceful,
The house was spacious and cozy, we cooked a lot and had all the utensils there we needed, with the large deck there was plenty of room for sunning, I think our dogs liked the deck more than us, they had plenty of room to chase each other around, we liked this house so much that we have already booked it again in August for another week, I highly recommend this property to anyone that likes to be away from it all
The house is nice and clean and literally steps from the beach. Has a beautiful large deck where you can lounge in the sun, but plenty of shade as well. We had a nice relaxing time and would have loved to stay longer. Will definitely try and do a summer trip back.
Quiet and comfortable on Bolivar
This comfy house is located on a relatively sparsely developed section of Bolivar Peninsula, but still convenient to restaurants, the ferry and The Big Store. The weather can be a little chilly this time of year so we spent lots of time on the roomy deck watching pelicans and dolphins. Couldn't ask for more.
The house is well appointed with comfortable furniture and beds. It is also a nice size.
Best of the Best
Having stayed multiple times, never disappointed! Everything we want for a week at the beach.
